Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli announced their marriage on December 11. Many Bollywood and Lollywood celebrities took to their social media accounts to send over their best wishes to the couple.

Even cricketers from both the countries congratulated the couple. However, Deepika Padukone was one of the few stars who did not wish Anushka, reported Pinkvilla.

Both the actors have expressed their respect for each other but this came as a huge shock to many people, creating speculations about another fallout.

It's been reported that the newlywed and Deepika were never really friends. This was fuelled when the actors ignored each other at the International Premier Tennis League in 2014. Furthermore, when Katrina Kaif and Anushka were quizzed about their friendship with Padmavati's female lead on last year's Koffee with Karan, their silence spoke volumes.

A source mentioned, "While we know that Deepika and Anushka are on good terms today, it was odd that Deepika didn’t wish her on social media. Discussions on their 'feud' started when Deepika started dating Anushka's alleged ex, Ranveer Singh.

But Deepika and Ranveer's relationship is very strong today so one would have expected her to wish Anushka on her special day. Till a year ago, the Jab Tak Hai Jaan actor was still passing sarcastic remarks on Deepika while the latter maintained a calm façade and said that she considered Anushka "a friend."

In 2015, the Om Shanti Om actor tried to make peace with Anushka by planting a kiss on her cheek at a censor boarding meeting and said that she loved Anushka's NH10.

The PK actor has also been very supportive of Deepika, especially when the latter came forth about her battle with depression. She was also one of the first ones to sign the 'Deepika bachao' petition initiated by Shabana Azmi and encouraged other actors such as Kangana Ranaut to sign as well. Therefore, it seemed strange when she did not wish 'Virushka.'

An insider clarified, "Maybe not on social media, but Deepika has wished the happy couple personally and it was a warm message. She texted them both her best wishes individually post the wedding. Deepika likes to add her own personal touch to whatever she does – be it her own team or friends - and social media can be a cold and an impersonal way of conveying one's feelings.

Also, she has always been very supportive of Anushka in everything she has done as Anushka has been of her. They may have had issues in the past but now both have found admiration and respect for each other."
